Exclusive Images: Book of 1000 Deaths

Published

on

A few days ago we told you about Andretti Dante’s new horror anthology film, Book of 1000 Deaths, and now we have some sexy and gore-soaked images to carry you off into the weekend. Yeah, we’re good like that!

Book of 1000 Deaths, we’re told, will unfold as a mash-up of Tales from the Crypt and Creepshow with an Elvira-esque wrap-around for good measure.

Here’s the synopsis from the Book of 1000 Deaths Facebook page:

Lila the Legend Teller and her frisky sidekick Whiskers bring you four stories that are more then just myths or fairy tales … these are urban legends with endings that are far from happy.

The first legend is “The Clown Statue” with Jasmine, a college freshman, struggling to make ends meet so she takes up babysitting to make cash while going to school. Jasmine watches the Newtons’ kids, Allie and Jonas. But little did Jasmine know that she would be a victim to a deranged serial killer who dresses up like a clown out to kill all babysitters.

The second legend is “Kidney Jacking”. Misti, an everyday nine-to-five office desk worker has the worst Friday after she stops by her boyfriend’s house that morning to catch him sleeping with another woman. Misti decides to go out with friends from work to their favorite bar. Misti ends up meeting James, a British fellow that is buying Misti drinks to make her feel better about what happened with her boyfriend. After one too many drinks Misti blacks out, only to wake up in a bathtub filled with ice and her kidney missing. Misti must do whatever she can to escape from the house and find help before it’s too late.

The third legend, “Bloody Mary”, involves six mid-20-year-old friends who meet up for a friendly get-together at Scott and Jessica’s house. When the friendly bunch find out that Monica has never played Bloody Mary growing up, they peer pressure her into playing to show her it’s not real. After some drinking and joking around, the group performs the ritual of calling Bloody Mary … not knowing that on this night Bloody Mary will appear and is coming to kill everybody.

The fourth legend is “The Man, The Myth, The Legend”, which follows two college roommates, Nate and Vince. Vince happens to be a real ladies man while Nate has just recently been dumped by his girlfriend. They go out for a college party with Vince’s teammate, Briggs. This is one party Vince wishes he would’ve missed because on this night he may have met his match when it comes to the ladies.

Sounds like a good time. Adult film star Misti Dawn will be your horror host Lila (sign me up, and up again!) as she navigates you through these four gruesome tales of unspeakable horror! It’s true that these things are often more miss than hit lately, but no one can say their hearts aren’t in the right place. Color me excited about this one, which I’ll be expecting to completely deliver on its delightful premise.

Dig on the short film that inspired its big brother creation below, along with our exclusive stills and keep an eye out for the official Book of 1000 Deaths website opening soon!

Class of 1999 Graduates to Blu-Ray in 2018

Published

on

Coming to blu-ray in early 2018 will be Class of 1999, which was originally released in 1990 and designed to be an unofficial sci-fi sequel to 1982’s Class of 1984, which itself received a special edition blu-ray in 2015. Confused yet?

In 1982, writer-director Mark L. Lester made Class of 1984, a slightly futuristic action thriller about teachers contending with teenage gangs in an inner-city high school. Lester would go on to grace us with Commando and Firestarter before returning to the premise in 1990 to give us the very futuristic Class of 1999. This time the action takes place near the turn of the millennium when gang violence overruns inner-city high schools to the point that the government steps in and replaces the teachers with reprogrammed military-grade battle androids. The super soldier cyborg faculty revert to their militaristic ways, naturally, and rack up quite a body count as they declare war on the student body leading to teenage gangs putting aside their difference to lead an anti-robot uprising in the halls of the school.

The time is the future, and youth gang violence is so high that the areas around some schools have become “free fire zones” into which not even the police will venture. When Miles Langford (Malcolm McDowell), the principal of Kennedy High School, decides to take his school back from the gangs, robotics specialist Dr. Robert Forrest (Stacy Keach) provides “tactical education units.” These human-like androids have been programmed to teach and are supplied with weapons to handle discipline problems. These kids will get a lesson in staying alive!

Boasting a screenplay by Full Moon stalwart C. Courtney Joyner and a cast including the likes of Stacy Keach, Pam Grier, Malcolm McDowell, Patrick Kilpatrick, and Traci Lind; Class of 1999 and its unique Stand and Deliver meets The Warriors meets The Terminator premise has garnered a loyal cult following over the years. We won’t mention the sequel. Forget I even brought it up. Sequel? What sequel?

Lionsgate Home Entertainment has announced Class of 1999 will be the next title getting a blu-ray release as part of their Vestron Collector’s Series in the first semester of 2018 with a fully loaded edition guaranteed to please fans and those that have yet to be educated on this enjoyable early Ninties b-movie extravaganza.

Disc extras will include:

Audio Commentary with Producer/Director Mark L. Lester
Interviews with Director/Producer Mark L. Lester and Co-Producer Eugene Mazzola
Interview with Screenwriter C. Courtney Joyner
Interviews with Special Effects Creators Eric Allard and Rick Stratton
Interview with Director of Photography Mark Irwin
Trailer & TV Spot
Still Gallery
Video Promo
Optional English, English SDH, and Spanish subtitles for the main feature

Class of 1999 graduates to blu-ray on January 30th.

KISS Meets Army of Darkness in New Comic Miniseries!

Published

on

Dynamite Entertainment just announced that they are planning to bring two of their bestselling brands together in “KISS/Army of Darkness #1”. The new comic book series will unite the rock band with none other than Ash for some Deadite ass kicking.

The series will be written by Chad Bowers and Chris Sims and illustrated by Ruairi Coleman. And the debut issue of “KISS/Army of Darkness” features three art covers from Kyle Strahm, Goni Montes, and Ken Haeser.

You can find all three covers below along with quotes from the creative team. After looking through all of that make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are about this new hybrid comic series in the comments below or on social media!

With Ash vs. The Army of Darkness, Chris and I were given kind of carte blanche to do whatever we wanted to the world of AOD, and we went for broke,” Co-writer Chad Bowers says. “We introduced some new characters and concepts, and built a legacy for Ash’s comics adventures that I’m immensely proud of, but not in a million years could I have guessed we’d get to continue that momentum with the added bonus of tossing the world’s greatest rock n’ roll band into the mix! I’ve been in the tank for KISS since I was in middle school. I remember buying the KISS tribute album, KISS My Ass for the Lemonheads (they covered Plaster Caster), which lead to me picking up Greatest Hits, and so on. But when I found out there was a KISS comic with blood in it, I signed up for life! Of course, I adore the songs (literally listening to Do You Love Me right now), but I’m just as obsessed with the way KISS transcends the music to become something of a genre themselves. It’s something I think about a lot, honestly, so no surprise, it’s a big part of our story too!”

“When it comes to Army of Darkness, I guess you could say that Ash is a bit of a gambler, but he’s nobody’s fool,” Co-writer Chris Sims says. “And since our first story was set back at Alan Shepard High, we’re looking forward to showing him some things that you can’t learn in school. Okay, okay, I’ll stop with the deep-cut lyrics now, but for real — if you thought Deadites at Homecoming and the Supernatural Military-Adjacent Response Team were taking Ash in a new direction, just wait until you see how we team him up with the Starchild, Space Ace, the Demon, and the Catman. In the grand tradition of the film, we’re tearing up the entire space-time continuum and if you think you know how weird this is gonna get… well, you sure know somethin’!”

“Having done some work for Dynamite in the past, I’ve really been wanting to get my foot in the door here for a long time so I can play in the sandbox of the amazing licenses they have,” Artist Ruairi Coleman says. “Chief among those, and high up on my bucket list, is Army of Darkness: Hail to the king, baby! So, when I was offered the job of drawing the KISS/Army of Darkness crossover, I couldn’t believe my luck! The concept is totally bonkers, but in a way, that would make complete sense in the world of Army of Darkness. Thinking about it, I’m surprised it hasn’t been done already and I’m honored (and more than a little intimidated) to be the guy who draws it.”

“After a more than 40-year career, KISS continues to be one of rock’s most celebrated bands, while Army of Darkness continues to be a staple in the comic book industry. We’re both honored to have the opportunity to work so closely with Gene and Paul to bring their world-renowned alter-egos to comics alongside our very own Ashy Slashy,” says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “The raging guitar chords and pyrotechnic spectacle of their stage shows could have come straight from the pages of the Necronomicon, and this epic battle between The Demon and Deadites will appeal to the hellions in all of us!”

Issue #1 will be available on digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, Madefire, and Dark Horse Digital.

The KISS/Army of Darkness miniseries event hits February 2018.

Synopsis:

KISS is on top of the world and rocking faces until the night disciples of The Destroyer show up and the band disappears. With the tour canceled, a young Ash misses one of the most important events of his life that will change his destiny. Now the Chosen One has to get back on the right path and join the KISS ARMY OF DARKNESS!
